Providing quality health care to our guests is a high priority goal of the Siena/Francis House. To this end, the Siena/Francis House has dedicated clinic space within our facilities, as well as partners with local health care providers to achieve this goal. The Visiting Nurse Association (VNA), Charles Drew Health Center, Creighton University Medical Center & Medical School, and Community Alliance utilize these clinic areas and provide medical and mental health care services to our guests.
The VNA provides two “shelter nurses” who are – essentially – the most primary health care providers to the homeless guests who stay at our shelter. These two shelter nurses are on site at the Siena/Francis House three days a week.
The non-profit organization, Charles Drew Health Center provides staffing for our medical clinic located in our Baright Shelter, 1111 North 17th Street. Charles Drew medical professionals see homeless guests 5 days a week
The Creighton University Medical Center & Medical School provide professional and medical student staff for their “Magis” Clinic, also located in our Baright Shelter. The Magis Clinic is open to our homeless guests from 2:00 until 6:00 on Saturdays.
The Siena/Francis House partners with another non-profit organization, Community Alliance, which provides mental health care services to our homeless guests.
